Happy Saturday, friends! And happy last day of 2016.
Although I’m sad my Christmas holidays are coming to an end, I’d like time to speed up again so I can be on a beach in Maui asap. Not just for the beaches, tropical forests, hiking trails, sea turtles, whales, mai tais, mahi mahi, sunsets and jeep adventures — but also because our unusually cold December weather is destroying my skin and I need to be exposed to heat, sun and humidity before I turn into a reptile.
Since I already shared my goals for 2017, here are a few random things to share going into the new year: things that I plan to do, things I’m obsessed with, and things that are on my mind lately. (more…)
I started publicly sharing my goals back in 2012 as a way to keep myself accountable, but also so I could look back and see where I was at the time fitness-wise, professionally and personally.
My 2012 and 2013 years were tough professionally and personally, as I was leaving one long-term relationship and moving into another, and transitioning from a tough contract job into a government position. In 2011 I completed my first triathlon and was a running machine, signing up for almost every local race I could afford. But in 2013 my focus shifted, and for some reason I made it my goal to “have abs” in 2013. I’m glad I decided to run my first ultra instead. That’s a much more bad-ass goal. (more…)
